My graduation present to me!

For a while now, I've just wanted to cut my hair! I decided 2 years ago when I donated my hair to Locks of Love I wanted to do it again, but it just seemed that I'd never get to a point where I felt comfortable chopping off 10 inches. Then I heard about Beautiful Lenghts, which is a donation program from Pantene Pro-V that only requires 8 inches of hair to donate, and their wigs are given to cancer patients. Seemed perfect! So, I told myself that for a graduation present, I'd get my hair cut and donate it again. Alas, the day FINALLY came, and I had all sorts of weird dreams about it...but I had a fantastic stylist, and I LOVE IT! I'm still having a hard time styling it myself, but thanks to a trusty flat-iron, I can at least make it look decent while I perfect my round brush skills!
Before....
After!

it's way cute!!!!! I am glad you did it! The round brushing skills will come. However, if they don't just use the flat iron. You will get the hang of styling with that before getting used to a round brush.

Looks great!! It's so great to pamper yourself with a new look now and then. And donating makes it happy for someone else too!
